Who Are Taller, Pigs Or Humans?

Recommended Posts

Hello forum, here is another stupid question from me!
Who do you think is taller in length? Pigmans or avarage human characters like Wilson, Maxwell etc?

Human meat was called "long pig" so maybe this is a refferance to that humans are longer than them? Or is this called like that BC of they are not fat as pigs? I mean we call giraffes long (They are 4,2 meters) but we don't say same thing about elephants (They are 6,5 meters) and that's because of the shape of body and weight.

In real life, pig lengths change in 1 meters to 2 meters if they would walk like DST pigs, so that makes them longer than us. I don't know much about pig breeds and I couldn't figure what breed could DST pigs be.

If we look into the game about lengths;

They have almost same length in game.

In trailers pigs are much taller even when pigs be on back.

In steam menu page humans are much taller even when pigs be on front.

I think the steam menu is not on scale, I always assumed pigs/bunnymen are slighlty taller than the average humans.
Not huge though, just like a really tall human, but since most survivors are not very tall, pigs look taller than them. Only exception be Wolfgang who seems to be canonically tall

If Pigs/Bunnyman had correct posture they would be like 1.5 of a size of a character, so yeah, they are huge

Basically what Rylanor said. If their skeletal anatomy didn't have a hunch back they would be a lot bigger compared to the Constant's survivors.

Pigs appear to be the same size because they are hunched over but when they are civilized and standing upright they are taller, if I had to throw a random guess id say by a foot or a half

The humans are not taller at the bottom picture, they are closer to the camera, and the Pig looks small! You can also see the Tallbird not being so tall that day!

PS. The artist probably imagined the bottom picture with fish-eye lens view, but the above one is a wide angle.

Fish-eye lens make sense

I think if we rid dst of its artstyle which makes 10 yo kids the same size as adults then the pigs would be much bigger than humans.

So yeah, I think Pigmen are bigger than survivors, it's just that the game's artstyle fails to show that

NPC maxwell, Charlie, Curio collector might be a shadow species

Though I wonder why Pugna is the size of Npc Maxwell if he originally came from our world?5d576e0edf4eb_Arielthoncdiscord.png.53228c98bab766ce8047c212e4242962.png
